I chose to HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.

I will be sharing my journey on YouTube and my GPS tracker location for all to map who are interested in my day today for the month of April. I will be hiking from Lake Roosevelt Central Arizona to the Utah border. One of my most anticipated highlights is hiking through the Grand Canyon.
